Thanks to the overwhelming support, at halfway through the campaign we reached our goal of $3,000 and finished the campaign at 125% of our goal. Thank you to all who donated!
Now in its 10th year, Build18 is an annual week-long hardware hackathon held by Carnegie Mellon University’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Every January, over 400 students form teams to complete an electronics project in a week’s time. Build18 serves as an intellectual playground for the brightest and most creative of Carnegie Mellon’s students. The event’s mission is to provide students with a risk-free environment to pursue personal engineering challenges, where the only limiting factor to creation is their own ingenuity.
Help us reach our goal of raising $3,000 to fund 10 teams for the build week in January 2019. Each accepted team receives a $300 budget for the parts for their project.
Build18 is entirely student-run and primarily supported through corporate and individual donors. Without adequate support, we cannot accommodate all students interested in participating. By contributing to Build18, you help us provide teams with the essential parts and materials needed to complete their projects and gain hands-on experience.
